It’s almost that time of year again where school bells ring, releasing excited children into a fun-filled week of Spring Break! This weeklong break is just around the corner and many parents are wondering how to keep their kids excited and motivated about learning during their time off from school. The International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) will host a weeklong camp from March 13th to the 17th for children in grades Pre-K to fifth.
“Spring Break Camps allow campers to keep learning throughout their vacation. Camps seek to inspire young learners to explore the world of STEAM with exciting and engaging hands-on activities,” says Jennifer Kanyo, Director of Education at IMAS.
Pre-K Through Second Grade
Campers from grades Pre-K through second will become outer space explorers! They will learn what it takes to be an astronaut as they get to know the planets in our solar system and create their own solar system models to take home. Campers will have a blast as they build and launch a rocket fueled by soda pop while getting messy with galaxy inspired space slime!
Third to Fifth Grade
Campers from third to fifth grade will discover the needs of living things and what it takes to survive on other planets by becoming Alien Adventurers! They will travel through our solar system on a search for alien life and build a spaceship that harnesses the power of propulsion!
“Campers can register up to the day before the camp session begins. However, spaces are limited so it’s recommended that campers register as soon as possible,” Kanyo concluded.
